A user-specified name that associates a value, a set of values, or a range of values with a conditional variable.

A conditional variable is a data item that can assume one or more values, that can, in turn, be associated with a condition-name.

Format 3 can be used to describe both elementary and group items. Further information on condition-name entries can be found under "VALUE Clause" in topic 5.3.17.
